Petropavlovsk Jeff was recently interviewed for Russian newspaper Petropavlovsk, which is based in Kazakhstan. Read what he has to say here, as he reflects on his songwriting, his influences and his time with the band.


Christie RevivalChristie bass player Kevin Moore, along with Christie drummer Simon Kay, have formed the Christie Revival Band, a tribute outfit aimed at keeping Jeff's legacy alive on the stage. The sets include the usual Christie hits plus many others not often played live, such as Man of Many Faces. There'll also be a sprinkling of Creedence songs and others in the same county rock mould.
   The band includes Mike Koch (who's played with Kevin in BC Sweet and Les McKeown's Bay City Rollers) on guitar and vocals. Keep a look out for them if they appear on a gig in your area.
   Kev is truly a man of many faces, having played in an assortment of groups over the years, apart from the ones mentioned above. The genres have ranged from glitter rock to heavy metal, and he's also involved with an acoustic outfit named Steve Bonham and the Long Road, co-writing and performing on a two-album set that was recently released.
   The band is doing a short tour of Germany in April this year, where they will be performing a number of Christie songs! See here for details.

ROMA

DEC 14: Academy-award wining director Alfonso Cuarón's beautiful movie ROMA is finally released on Netflix and various theatres. It's a favourite for an Oscar and Jeff is associated with it, albeit in a small way. In the film, Yellow River is heard as a song on the radio to reflect the period it's set in (1970), and was personally requested by Cuarón to be used. But irrespective of this, it is a lovely movie that is worth watching for the sheer brilliance of the way it pairs thrilling technical prowess with profound artistic vision. Make sure to grab a copy of the soundtrack.

 


Isherwood


Steve Isherwood, who played guitar with the Outer Limits on the Hendrix tour, recently passed away. Read Jeff's tribute here.


We told you that big news was forthcoming from Alfonso Cuarón, the much-acclaimed director of movies like Gravity and Children of Men. We can now reveal that his next film, called ROMA, is scheduled to be released in theaters, as well as streaming on Netflix, on December 14 this year. It had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on August 30 and will show at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10  and the New York Film Festival on October 5. On review aggregator Rotten TomatoesRoma holds an approval rating of 96 per cent based on 23 reviews, with an average rating of 8.9/10. On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 96 out of 100, based on 13 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".
   What's this got to do with Christie? Watch the movie and you will hear a familiar song!
   See the trailer here.


Another great collection of UK beat music from the 60s has been released by the same team which brought you When Night Comes Down, which featured Just One More Chance.
   Fab Gear draws heavily from the vaults of Pye Records and sister label Piccadilly, and focuses on the scene’s later gems from 1965/66, which were often musically superior to those earlier works.
   The six-CD box set offers around 180 tracks in chronological order from the mid-1960s, and includes many of the era’s biggest names such as The Kinks, The Moody Blues, The Searchers, Marmalade and The Tremeloes.
   The Outer Limits are represented by the rocking Any Day Now and its killer riff.
   A hefty booklet boasts band-by-band histories and details of each recording.
